THE UNITED NATIONS LOSES ITS LUSTER IN THE U.S.A.
By Tom DeWeese
Significantly, the poll went on to reveal that most Americans want to cut congressional support for the UN. Fully 37% said UN funding should be decreased.
While Americans are beginning to understand that the United Nations is not our friend, some in Canada still don't get it. Dennis Mills, a member of the Canadian Parliament, is floating the idea of offering space in downtown Toronto for a new UN headquarters.
Mills argues that Toronto's unique multicultural nature, coupled with Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien's insistence on sticking with the UN throughout the war in Iraq, would make Canada's largest city a perfect place to breathe new life into the much-ma- ligned international body.
Mills has in mind 160 acres of undeveloped Toronto waterfront property. The land is currently being considered for a proposed series of high-rise condominiums where pri- vate citizens could live happy, private and productive lives, using their own money earned through honest hard work--in other words, the antithesis of the United Nation's Socialist policies. Mills longs to use the land for "more creative purposes" than mere human happiness. That's why he thinks it's the perfect place for the UN, where the land will be wasted on bloated bureaucrats who push worthless paper, and dream up schemes to burden human progress.
The problem is that the UN knows where the bucks are. They are right here in the good old US of A. The UN has no intention of moving to provincial Canada. Even with the of- fer of a new building on newly liberated ground in a country controlled by globalist home boys, the UN says it's sticking with its plans to renovate the old headquarters in New York and is lobbying hard to secure an interest-free loan from American taxpayers.
Clearly, Americans are no longer inclined to underwrite this essentially subversive or- ganization. During the weeks leading up to the Iraq invasion, the Bush administration appeared to take that position. However, if one is going to take a strong stand to defy global elitists, then one must be prepared to back it up or suffer the consequences.
Now, things have gotten a little tough out in the desert, as cowardly Saddam's loyalists and Islamic jihadists pick off American and allied soldiers one by one. Did the United States actually expect everyone in Iraq except Saddam to be good little capitalists, thrilled to have the U.S.A. take over their country? It's war and should be treated as such. Instead, the U.S. government treats it like a police action, trying to arrest just a few bad guys.
Instead of taking control of the situation on our own terms, Colin Powell and others in the administration, panic stricken, are showing their true colors by pushing for UN inclusion. The sight of U.S. diplomats, the swagger of springtime gone, groveling before the likes of Germany, France, China and Russia, pleading for the UN to help us, is too disgusting for words. To make matters worse, even amidst their groveling, the administration arrogant- ly insists that the United States be in charge of the whole operation.
A blind man could certainly see the UN's response coming long before that proposal was made. The front page of the Washington Times said it all when it displayed a photograph of German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and French President Jacques Chirac smugly guzzling beers in Dresden, Germany, with the caption reading: "They called the U.S. proposal 'not dynamic enough, not sufficient.'"
The administration's actions, by going back to the United Nations, tail between its legs, asking for help from the very people it arrogantly flipped off just months ago, is a disas- ter of incalculable proportions for American independence and sovereignty.
France, Russia and Germany took a gamble in defying the United States last March. They gambled that globalism was the future and the provincial notion that nations are free to defend themselves is a relic of a bygone era. These nations see the UN as their ticket to their own global power against the U.S.A.
The Bush administration's groveling has proven them right on both counts--at least in the collective minds of the power-elite. When will a nation ever again have the courage to stand up for itself? Our fate may now have been sealed.
